Bath MP supports DHI Fashion Swap Fundraiser

Bath MP supports DHI Fashion Swap Fundraiser

Wera Hobhouse, the Liberal Democrat MP for Bath, has given her support to DHI's new Fashion Swap Fundraiser.

DHI has developed the Fashion Swap Fundraiser for people to fundraise and update their wardrobe without spending lots of money. The idea is simple, invite a group of friends over, ask them to bring a couple of pre-loved items, enjoy a drink, swap and choose clothes and make a donation to DHI.

Wera Hobhouse, Liberal Democrat MP for Bath said:

"This is a wonderful fundraising idea addressing the cost of living crisis and at the same time supporting sustainable living. It is a typical Bath idea of style, colour and community. I hope you feel inspired to hold one of these events in your home or work place and raise money and much needed awareness of DHI. Thank you DHI for your invaluable support of vulnerable communities in Bath."

Katie Rawlings, DHI Fundraiser, said:

"Our hope is to encourage many people to hold an event at home or in their work place. Essentially it will be a really fun get together for friends, help to prevent clothes going into landfill (£140m worth of clothing each year) and will give people a much-needed lift."
